February #2 – International correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

More Letters for my Every day commitment. I’m finding it a challenge to think of someone every day but I’m still keeping up! I thought it might be more interesting to tell you who I sent to and why.

#6 Josephine in the Netherlands because she hasn’t been well & #7 Chloe a friend for just being lovely.

#8 Dennis & Pat (church friends) for just being lovely.

#9 Emily my cousins daughter at Uni, for encouragement & #10 My Auntie Glenda, just to say hello.

#11 Heather a friend locally who has been extremely poorly recently.

#12 Jeanne in the UK, the minister at our first church after we were married because of happy memories.

#13 Lisa who lives local, a friend who has ME, to make her smile, as I took this photo from the top of the church tower and the arrow points to where my house is!

And #14 Sarah, someone new in the US who is doing the same letter writing challenge as me.

I’m half way through the challenge now so keep watching 🙂

February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!

1st & 2nd Feb.

It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! 🙂

From a Friend

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

She loves portraits and she did one of me and sent it through the mail 🙂

New post box

Standard

After getting a bit of a bash when the lawn was being mowed a few months ago, our mail box had never been the same. We finally decided we needed a new one, so I thought I’d show you all.
I am now the proud owner of a bright red mail box for all my yummy mail!Postbox 1 Postbox 2
I think the next step is to decorate it some how 🙂
